“Good location, friendly staff, great rooms.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Stayed for one night. Beautiful hotel. Rooms were big and very nice! Loved the shower and bath. I slept like a baby in their soft bed. Service was fine, very friendly. Food was delicious!
But make sure you don't keep your roomkey (card) next to your phone, because then for some reason it won't work anymore. They have other ones, thank god, but just to help you avoid it!

Hotel is also situated in a great location. We went to Dordrecht and it was about a 15-20 minuten drive. Rotterdam and Kinderdijk (must-see) are very close as well.

Rooms are very good size and very comfortable beds. large bathroom with separate shower and tub. the restaurant is good size with a very nice selection on the menu for reasonable prices. Comfortable bar area with couches, fire place and tables. Breakfast has many selections for hot and cold foods. Location is not great with little access to nearby shops or restaurants. Out by itself.

PROS:
- Wi-Fi is now unlimited with good coverage in the rooms
- fantastic breakfast
- solid dinner
- spacious and comfortable rooms

CONS:
- prices, especially in the bar and restaurant
- bed!!! the beds are NOT flat, tried several rooms and it's all the same, this makes you wake up during the night...

All in all it is very convenient place to stay when doing business in Rotterdam area. But longer stay would probably lower the rating due to very strangely shaped beds.

Van der Valk is a dutch hotel chain known for its good value for money. Van der Valk Ridderkerk is no exception to this rule. Nice, large and clean rooms with a good bed. Breakfast very good and a welcoming staff.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

I stayed at this hotel for one night on business and overall it was good, but it doesn't stay in my mind as anything particularly amazing.

Here, as usual, is my balanced review of things to note.

I liked:
The large reception, swift and friendly check-in, free and reliable Wifi, modern, clean surroundings, good sized room, huge free carpark and easy access from the motorway network.

There wasn't anything I didn't like, but a couple of things to be aware of:
The hotel is shaped like an athletics track with rooms all around the side. It reminds me somewhat of a prison. In the middle on the ground floor some exercise machines had been added in pairs at various locations. It was good to see them there as the hotel has no fixed gym, but exercising meant being in full view of other guests as they entered or exited their rooms. Quite bizarre! Breakfast was what you would expect of a large hotel like this - plentiful but expensive. I can't comment on dinner as we ate out.

Overall this hotel is good but nothing outstanding.

We stayed here 3 nights last July to visit Rotterdam and surroundings with Dutch F-friends.
Big modern hotel ; ample FREE parking.
Hotel is built around an atrium.
Front-office friendly and efficient.
Rooms about 30m2 with big double beds, working desk with free Wi-Fi, safe and minibar.
Bathroom with many free amenities.
We had only 1 diner together with our Dutch friends.
Dining-room was crowded and I would advise to make a reservation.
I did not find a set menu and we ordered à la carte. Food well prepared and presented.: you get value for your money but do not expect high gastronomy.
General impression : good, friendly and polite staff ; good location close to major highways and also for visiting Rotterdam-city , harbour and neighbouring townssuch as Schiedam.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014 via mobile

Visited as had business in the area and the company we were visiting made reservations. Given the slightly industrial area I expected a travelodge/motel type place. How wrong I was! You must visit here just to see the crazy cruise ship shaped atrium that the bedrooms are based around and the beautiful and relaxing bar area. The whole building is (in my humble opinion) just wonderfully done.

Add to this really great food in a lovely and relaxed restaurant, staff who are intelligent and helpful and spoke perfect English and were never rude or dismissive of my total lack of ability with language and I had the most wonderful stay.

I am trying to figure out a trip just to take my husband to see this hotel.
